The u/10 Blues had an amazing game with many goals scored.

Bailey Sawtell and Hayden Petersen controlled the midfield working tirelessly and giving accurate passes out wide to Noah Tye, Tarleah Lesnieweski, Tiarna Scott, Sophie Ryan and U/10 player Taylor Povey to move the ball around the opposition defence to then square the ball across goal for Kyle Wischnevsky to take many shots on goal.

Second Division Women defeated Fraser Flames on Friday night.
With some players sick and others unavailable due to helping the 1st Division team out who played in Hervey Bay the same time as the 2nd Division in Maryborough.
With only one substitute the girls showed courage and played with a lot of heart to continue the whole game.
Taelah Godfrey did well in midfield and was then moved to centre fullback position which she handled extremely well and shut down the opposition's speedy striker.
Sally Moller swapped with Sharon Hepburn in goals due to being ill and made some great saves.
Lauryn Garrard played her usual strong defensive game and never gives up.
Stacey Cowell in her first season of soccer played an awesome game in midfield and will run and tackle anywhere she's required and was Player of the Match.
Kaitlyn Ryan was damaging as usual and was wisely used by her team-mates.
Using her pace and skill she slotted home three nice goals along with Taelah who also scored.
This game was a credit to all the girls for hanging in there, handling different positions and never letting each other down.
